Construction Traffic Beware Cyclists Going Straight Ahead. https://t.co/Ufx3LCdotP

Shared path signal crossing with ‘begging-button’. Prioritises cars within the sensor zone of the signal, otherwise changes immediately.

Cycle contraflow and No Motorcycles sign - very unusual!

No Motor Vehicles

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

[UPDATE: On 21.7.22 I saw the Road Closed sign had been removed.] [Image taken 19.7.22] Coppergate (Nessgate end), York. The temporary Road Closed sign is a hazard. It further reduces the already limited space for people turning at a tight ... [more]

[Image taken 18.7.22] Terry Avenue, York. The gate that was here pre-Clementhorpe floodworks (see: #73827) was removed. Now we have fencing/temporary barricades which look(s) intimidating. And an inaccurate sign. The route is open... to non ... [more]

No Cycling sign at the Jardin de l'Arsenal

Cycling down this hill is dangerous

Sign stating that raw sewage gets dumped into the sea here.

The road ahead (left-right, which happens to be NCN 1) has been designated a "40mph zone", despite being a normal country lane no different from any of the other lanes in the area.

This country lane (which happens to be NCN 1) has been designated a "40mph zone", despite being a normal country lane no different from any of the other lanes in the area. Drivers were remarkably deferential when I encountered them.

Even in the centre of Cambridge there are still Dead End signs without an Except Cyclists plate - incredible.

[Image taken 14.6.22] Grosvenor Road close to the junction with Grosvenor Terrace, York. I think this might be a new sign - it's very clean and isn't on street view. Context and links: #183558. The building on the left is the former home of ... [more]

[Correction/Update: The ward councillor clarified: "The Press report is incorrect. This is because the signs were put in the wrong position. Burton Stone Lane will be closed from Crichton Ave to Burton Green so that the concrete road repair ... [more]

[Image taken 12.6.22] Hurricane Way, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. I'm baffled why there is a new No idling sign here but none at polluted junctions. (Especially where CYC has made changes under the TSAR scheme https://democracy.york.gov.uk ... [more]

[Image taken 12.6.22] Hurricane Way, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Context/links: #183545. Note the York barrier - the level level chicane on the left, and the staggered railings on the right. These obstruct the passage of most people with ... [more]

The cycleway doesn't so much finish as revert to shared-use for a spell, for some reason.

[Image taken 8.6.22] Coppergate, York. Context: #180531. Permanent 'Except cycles' signs at the entrance from Nessgate. A cycle symbol is (just) visible on the tarmac just after the pedestrian crossing. Other image here today: #183406. Othe ... [more]

I'm all for reducing pole clutter, but really signs should be above head height.

Shouldn't this sign show segregated pedestrian and cycle paths rather than a general cycleway sign? The 20 mph limit applies to the road, of course.

Another 'Cycles only' sign on University Avenue. The solid line of the mandatory cycle lane extends over part of the junction too.

The sign reads "No vehicular access to Argyle Street" but is covered in graffiti. A sign at Argyle Street suggests this is part of the West City Way council cycle route. A case where 'No Motor Vehicles' should be used, and the bollards rein ... [more]

Traffic sign violations.

.. but what is this nonsense? (see #182651) - Cyclists Dismount sign where cars are obviously free to move around - on the way to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance. (And why so far above the ground?)

NCN route 3 continues ahead, cyclists turning right to Penzance station are supposed to dismount to cross a car park.

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

No Cycling on this section of the Cornish coastal path owned by the National Trust

[Image taken on 11.5.22] Bootham Park Hospital grounds, exit to Bridge Lane, York. Bad practice: cyclists dismount sign. A warning: "Pedestrian-cycle path ahead' would be appropriate. Other images today: #182555 and links.

Start of byway - I haven't tested it, but cyclists should be able to get through to the Helford River at the head of Porth Navas Creek.

Not easy to see, but one sign reads Roadworks from 27/4 for 4 days, the other reads Roadworks from 29/4 for 3 days - and they're both still there well into May.
